This year's MMLA conference was originally scheduled to be held last fall. MMLA 2021 will be held at Milwaukee, WI, or in a virtual format if necessary. The conference theme remains the same. 

The Comparative Literature section of the MMLA invites proposals for papers that engage with this year's conference theme, "Cultures of Collectivity." Papers addressing the following suggested MMLA topics from a transnational, cross-cultural, and/or interdisciplinary perspective would be particularly relevant:

  • collective movements throughout the history of art and culture;
  • the formation of communities through bibliography and scholarship;
  • language communities; cultures of diaspora;
  • academic communities

Please submit abstracts to Fontaine Lien at fontaine.lien@valpo.edu by May 1, 2021.
